ESB returns with another set of free esports betting predictions for Saturday, focusing on two StarCraft II tournaments – 2020 AfreecaTV GSL Super Tournament 2 and TeamLiquid StarLeague 6 – as well as one Dota 2 fixture from the fourth season of the South American BTS Pro Series.

BTS Pro Series Season 4: Americas

TEAM BRASIL vs 4 ZOOMERS DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Brasil $4.87 at GG Bet | 4Z $2.37 at GG Bet

Team Brasil began their BTS Pro Series Season 4: Americas campaign with a narrow 1-1 draw against S A D B O Y S and a commanding 2-0 win over Arkosh Gaming. 4 Zoomers have produced equally impressive results with sweeps of 5ManMidas and Thunder Predator, while both teams are 4-4-2 in their last 10 outings.

4 Zoomers and Team Brasil have met three times this year, with each series ending in a 1-1 draw. Brasil were the better-performing side in their most recent bout, and considering they managed a stalemate against Clinton “Fear” Loomis and his crew on Tuesday, we don’t see why they can’t win least one map on Saturday.

TY vs TRAP SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: TY $2.52 at GG Bet | Trap $1.47 at GG Bet
When: December 12, 2020 at 17:00 KST
Watch Live: AfreecaTV (http://play.afreecatv.com/gslenglish)


Jun “TY” Tae Yang is only one step away from his first StarCraft II Premier tournament grand final since he won 2020 Global StarCraft II League Season 3 in early November. His path to more silverware, however, won’t be easy as he faces Cho “Trap” Sung Ho, who has beaten him in all of their last four meetings.

Since the turn of the year, TY has met with Trap eight times and won only the one series back in April with 5-4. He has lost all of the remaining four with a 5-10 map differential but has managed to win three out of eight maps in their last two brawls.

Regardless of Trap’s recent success, we like our chances with TY better. He looked good in their last two meetings and should have a solid chance to cause an upset.

STATS vs ROGUE SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: Stats $2.17 at GG Bet | Rogue $1.63 at GG Bet
When: December 12, 2020 at 18:15 KST
Watch Live: AfreecaTV (http://play.afreecatv.com/gslenglish)


Kim “Stats” Dae Yeob enters this match as the underdog, which is difficult to explain considering he has beaten Lee “Rogue” Byeong Yeol in both of their last two meetings. Even though Rogue swept Cho “Maru” Seong Ju (3-0) on Wednesday, the current no.3 in the ESL Pro Tour 2020/21 Korea standings looked a bit off on that day.

Rogue appears to have found his touch, but he still seems a bit overrated at StarCraft II betting sites heading into this match. The odds are way too short, which is why we will gladly take a shot with the outsider.

SERRAL vs DARK SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: Serral $1.29 at GG Bet | Dark $3.33 at GG Bet
When: December 12, 2020 at 19:00 CET
Watch Live: AfreecaTV (http://play.afreecatv.com/gslenglish)


Joona “Serral” Sotala enters this match as a heavy favourite over Park “Dark” Ryung-woo, but even at $1.29, we find those odds to be a fraction longer than they should be. Serral has met Dark five times in his career, winning the last three in a row with a 9-2 map differential.

There is a world where Dark upsets Serral, but it’s hard to expect any surprises since the reigning DreamHack SC2 Masters 2020 Winter champion rarely drops games like this. Anything above $1.70 on the Finn to win with at least two maps to spare is a good bet.

MARU vs PARTING SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: Maru $1.65 at GG Bet | PartinG $2.14 at GG Bet
When: December 12, 2020 at 20:00 CET
Watch Live: AfreecaTV (http://play.afreecatv.com/gslenglish)


Maru enters the final international StarCraft II Premier tournament of the year off a humiliating 0-3 loss against Rogue at 2020 AfreecaTV GSL Super Tournament 2. He is now set to face Won “PartinG” Lee Sak, who seems like an easier opponent on paper, but we have a hard time believing Maru will win this clash.

Maru has met with PartinG 15 times since 2012 and won only five series, including one 2-1 win in October. Despite that result last time out, we don’t see why Maru should be priced as the favourite.
